Superb!

Makes you wonder how many other times manager's speak the truth, only for us to see the sanitised versions.

Managers have to face the press after gut-wrenching defeats, often with significant consequences and it must be difficult for them to keep their composure in such situations.

They must still be very disappointed,annoyed,frustrated etc etc and they have to face the cameras and often searching questions but this goes with the territory.

For a start that was when he was West Brom manager, following a win against Bolton, and my view is that Hodgson makes a bit of a fool of himself. Ivan Gaskell wants to ask him about the refereeing decisions, but without leading the interview, hence the general question. There was no justification for that intemperate response. Roy's come close to this type of behaviour in a couple of interviews since he's been with us. Being able to deal with questions from the media politely and calmly is part of his job, but if with age he's turning into an irascible old git, perhaps someone else from the management team should do the post-match interviews.

Nothing wrong in being an "Irascible old git"!

To be fair to Hodgson he has been under incredible pressure at our club and coupled with defeats in a relegation battle, and last-minute dramas one can perhaps understand if his mood and responses reflect such abject disappointments.Personally I haven't seen him in 'Irascible old git' mood when interviewed but as explained could understand if he indeed acted in this manner.

It is fine for us not involved in such situations and in the 'Cold light of day' forming judgements but we haven't faced the cameras immediately after a disappointment.I know what I have felt like after many of our games and my poor wife has taken the brunt of my ire.

What? Every manager lets their foul mood show every once in a while when they've lost or been on the end of unjust decisions, and I think Roy comes across as one of the most polite and professional managers with the press.

You alluded to the fact that perhaps managers speak their mind whilst emotions are running high but then are re-interviewed and the 'Sanitised' version is broadcast.All I was trying to do was to explain why managers might react this way straight after a defeat and I can understand their feelings.
